Petrol prices went up again yesterday to £1.20 a litre and it prompted a discussion about what constitutes value for money these days. As a result we will occasionally post our own ideas of products or services that we believe still offer good value for our hard earned cash.
My first nomination is the first class letter stamp, the price is currently 39p and will rise to 41p on 6th April. I know that there are moaners who like to knock the postal service and price that they pay for it but I guarantee they would be moaning a lot louder if they were hand delivering to Aberdeen, London, Truro, Hull or Cardiff ( or anywhere else ). I’m happy to pay the 39p, peel off the stamp, stick it to my envelope, pop it in a post box in the knowledge that it will be landing on the destination doormat the next morning.
